What Makes Us Trans?

We don't really know what makes someone feel they are in some way transgender, however it is entirely logical that we should exist. After all, both sexuality and gender identity are intrinsically biologically determined and hence subject to all kinds of anomalies. Over the last numbers of decades, we have conclusively found that human behaviour and identity are contained within a spectrum rather than defined by isolated and static models which suited organized religion as well as socio-political entities that relied heavily on human predictability and uniformity. Many of us, myself included, grew up hoping we could repair ourselves but eventually reality sinks in and we rightly conclude that we are part of the fabric of humanity. We may not readily fit well with the majority, but have every right to fair treatment.

Reality is far more complex than any manufactured ideals and many of us suffered needlessly under the yolk of the stupidity of a humanity which today I have little patience for. Hence, for my own sanity, I have learned to outgrow the small-mindedness of a culture which kept me subjugated under its artificial regulations for more years than I care to admit.

In this blog you will find ten years (with some breaks in between) of personal reflection on this very heavy topic culminating in my liberation from the ignorance and malice of the weak minded. Having researched this subject for many years, I can safely state that anyone presuming to conclusively tell you why you are the way you are is necessarily a charlatan, a fool or both. Hence, a healthy dose of skepticism here would be an asset to you.

Therefore, in the absence of scientific certainty, I would suggest that you find out who what defines you and then live that reality as best you can within this imperfect creation of ours. Do not be too quick to label yourself and just move along and discover who you are by removing obstacles to your personal growth along the way.
